About Spili

Spili is an extremely picturesque town, nestling underneath the slopes of Mount Vorisis. It's a busy, bustling town which has all the amenities one might expect from a working Cretan town. There is a great choice of eateries here and it is a good shopping place. In the town's shady square can be found the town's famous feature - the Venetian fountain with a row of 19 lions' heads which spout fresh mountain water into a stone trough. There are three churches of interest: the church of Agia Theodori; the church of Agios Georgios and the church of the Metamorphosis of the Sotira (Saviour). Inside these churches are some wonderful examples of wall frescoes and religious icons.

The area around Spili is green and lush with many little mountain streams and plenty of trees and is a good area for walking.
